    Too much clutter of same topic reports/rumors
    I've been noticing that "OneMoreThing..." post same topic rumors/news that could otherwise be inserted in an existing thread on the rumors section. As of 2 seconds ago, there are 5 new posts that could have all been posted in the same thread, since it mostly covers the same topic.
    Also, Is it really necessary to post absolutely every little report/rumor?
    I'm just saying this because, as you can see, a lot of these "reports" or "rumors" apparently have been getting 0 feedback based on comments.
    I know people do like reading some things here, and commenting amongst the members, but I don't think every new report/rumor is needed. I guess this is one of the outcomes of having a dedicated reporter on here

    Just a thought.

    Thanks for your concern and input. The Rumor Robot "One More Thing" is automatically picking the topics and does not necessarily discern between them. We will certainly take a look at it to see if improvements can be made.

    Again, thanks for your interest and bringing it to our attention.

    Actually, it is a curated feed. I'll talk to iWhat a bit about how it works and see if I can help better prune some of the incoming content.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
